ABOUT

I am a multi-instrumentalist looking for like-minded musicians and genuine cross genre music lovers as a sounding board (pardon the pun) who can give their honest constructive feedback on my original music. Right now, I have about 300 songs and ideas (i.e., riffs with intro, verse/melody, and chorus) that are across pop rock, hard rock, metal, country, alt country rock, alternative, that I would like to further develop or write more of. I would also like to experiment / have fun and see what other genres I could do (e.g., symphonic metal, EDM). I would like to get to a point where I have about 10 - 20 solid songs in each "genre" that I like.

If “chemistry” and time permit, I would love for this to develop into writing / collaboration, and into a jam or public performance situation / band, even if it is once or ongoing. Singer / lyricists would be great, as I cannot sing. It has been hard to find like-minded musicians / collaborators in COS. If there are any Denverites who are interested and serious, I am happy to come up to Denver area.
